Water Heater Installation & Replacement
A good water heater is rated to last for between 6 and 10 years and during that time it will be solely responsible for providing ample hot water whenever you turn on a hot water tap. For that reason, you want to know that it will be sufficient for your family’s needs.
There are three important decisions to be made when selecting a new water heater for your Bergen County home. They include:
- Type of Water Heater – Traditional tank water heaters provide ample hot water for homes of all sizes, but they cost quite a bit of money to operate because they keep a large volume of water warm at all times, even when you don’t need it. For this reason, tankless water heaters have become very popular in recent years. These systems heat only the water you need it by using an electric element at the source. They cost more to install but more than make up for it over time.
- Gas or Electric – If you select a tank water heater, you must choose gas or electric. If you have an existing gas or electric water heater, it is usually easiest to choose a similar model. You will find that gas is more efficient over time but electric is easier and less expensive to install.
- Size – Finally, your water heater should be sized for your home. We do this by determining how much hot water will be used during a single hour if used continuously by multiple fixtures in your home. For tankless water heaters, sizing is based more on the the number of water pipes that will be heated by a single element.
